You'll be able to look behind the curtain at my thought process. This includes musings that will never make it to the website, rough content, plus any of my thoughts on digital marketing. (At least one post a month)

Let me first thank you for reading, sharing, and supporting Joystick Journey, it means a lot to me. Thank you for checking out my Patreon page for Joystick Journey, a blog where life and video games blend into something resembling adulthood. By supporting me on Patreon you help develop my website's journey and my continued writing. It also helps me better connect with supporters such as yourself.

Who is El Jeffe?
My name is Jeff but some of my friends call me El Jeffe. I started playing video games since I was about 6 year old. The ability to control a character on a screen with a push of button, sucked into a world of fantasy of doing things I never would imagine experiencing. Video games captured my attention instantly and stuck with my while I went through school. Staying up late to play video games with friends, going out to flea markets looking for deals, and learning more about the hobby I love. All of this and more ended up shaping me into who I am today.

I started Joystick Journey because I wanted to share my memories and stories of my own and by providing younger or newer collectors with with over 25 years of video game experience. I want to inspire readers to be better video game collectors. And most important of all, I want to encourage my readers to share their own experiences.

Why Patreon?
Reading and listing to other gamers share their stories was something I loved doing growing up. Knowing there were other kids like me out there who ate, slept, and dreamt of video games really made me realize that this hobby has an impact on our lives. From video game forums which no longer exist, to YouTube shows and Twitch streams, it’s never been easier to share your love for video games. This is what a majority of this Patreon is about, I want to hear your stories and memories. Not about a epic raid you had but but how video games helped you connect with another person. Patreon's ability to supply a platform to receive and respond feedback directly is a big plus in my book. In addition to this, I receive no compensation for my work so your support will directly help support my website, JoystickJourney.com. With your help, it makes it easier for me to write content I actually want to write without having to depend on click bait articles or s
that I'd rather not. I am offering some rewards in return for your support
